According to Sky Sports News, Nigeria international Odion Ighalo wants to leave Chinese Super League outfit Changchun Yatai and return to England.

Premier League fans will be familiar with Ighalo for his exploits at Watford FC, where he formed a deadly partnership with Troy Deeney.

Ighalo left the Hornets for Chanchung Yatai in 2017, and went on to score an impressive 36 goals in 55 for the Chinese club.

The same report claims that Yatai are looking to recover the £20 million (R353 million) they spent on the Nigerian, should they sell him this month.
